You Can’t Change What You Don’t Acknowledge!

 

 

After seeing in black & white the harmful effects of their relationship with alcohol, many people have found it valuable to say "good-bye" to or emotionally release from alcohol or other addictive choices. Here is an example of a letter that I wrote to the various kinds of alcohol that I had drank many times. I had suffered enough and was ready to let alcohol go and say good-bye.

 

6/25/1987

DEAR ALCOHOL,

I'm sick and tired of feeling "sick and tired"! My tolerance for PAIN may be high but it's not without limit.

 

You have been my closest friend and companion for a long time.

You've helped me through many hard times.

 

But, NOW, I'm ready to let you go! I have no need of you anymore.

Our relationship has NOT been a healthy one...YOU'RE KILLING ME...A DAY AT A TIME!

 

I know that it may feel uncomfortable for a while, but I know that I CAN learn new ways of dealing with LIFE—I'm a spiritual, competent being.

 

I'm ready to let go of my CRUTCH. Drinking alcohol is no longer an option. No matter what, I don't drink or use anymore. It is NOT an option!

I'm ready to live life FULLY now! It is safe to be happy. I DESERVE the best!

 

I release the "world of sorrow" and accept the "world of joy". Good-Bye...Good-Bye…Good-Bye! Drinking is NO LONGER AN OPTION.

 

As I look back now, I was fearful of life—abundant life. I worried. I didn’t trust life. I turned to my sick relationship—"awful alcohol". The results were always dependable. I felt instant release from all my fears and misery, But I ended up feeling awful and drained, un-centered and ALWAYS BAD. Never good! I was frequently sick for three days after my drinking episodes.

 

I WILL NOT VALUE WHAT IS VALUELESS!

 

The "world of dark beers" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of coffee liquors" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of fine cabernet wine" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of pinot noir wine" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of chennin blanc wine" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of zinfandel wine" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of Assencia wine" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of Port wine" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The ”world of brandy" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of dark, delicious rum" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of vodka" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of Champagne and sparkling wines" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of rose wines" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of wine coolers" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of raspberry or other fruit wines" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The ”world of triple sec (orange liquor)" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The " world of tequila" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of celebrations using alcohol to celebrate" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of gin" offers me NOTHING that I want.

The "world of piňa colada" offers me NOTHING that I want.

(These were many of my binge alcohol beverages that I had recorded in my diaries.)

Actual alcohol #1-Consumption diary kept in a addiction-recovery book while I was reading it!

Actual alcohol #2-Consumption diary kept in a addiction-recovery book while I was reading it!

 

 

BEYOND "THESE WORLDS" IS "THE WORLD" THAT I REALLY WANT.

 

I choose "the world" of being happy, JOYOUS and free!

 

My brain just plays out—like on "auto-replay"—the same OLD suggestions that lead to NO WHERE. No where except to feeling DRAINED and DEMORALIZED!

 

God, or Universe, I give my crutch to YOU. Drinking alcohol and taking drugs is NO LONGER an option! Please help me make right choices.

 

I NEED your help, I can't do it ALONE.

Thank you for your help!

God, or Universe, I give all my fears to YOU!

With trust,

 

J Bob

 

A CEREMONY OF RELEASE

 

 

 

       I went through the same ceremony of release     that I went through as I did with food, but used alcohol.
